Alaska Luxury Yachting Guide

Famous for its remote location that has created a region of pure, unequalled raw beauty, Alaska is one of North America’s most intriguing sailing destinations. Nowhere else in the world can travellers spy eagles, bears, whales and seals from the yacht deck as tremendous glaciers and awe-inspiring sunsets gleam phenomenally in the background.

Alaska’s isolation is its ultimate appeal; sailing the waters of this amazing region grants access to parts of the world others rarely get to see. The majority of Alaska’s coastline is inaccessible by road, making exploring the region by yacht an incredible opportunity to experience all the beauty of the breathtaking wilderness while surrounded by absolute luxury.

Juneau
The stunning capital of Juneau is a sprawling city of hilly terrain, winding streets and colourful character. Completely inaccessible by road, this lovely city is enriched with a small-town charm that offers the very best in Alaskan sightseeing, adventurous activities and romantic escapes.

Ketchikan
Ketchikan sits south of Juneau and is a wonderful blend of exciting activities and interesting browsing opportunities in the town centre. The charming Creek Street is a true Alaskan treasure; a delightful row of wooden buildings poised over the water housing bright boutiques and intriguing collections of Northwest totems.

Inside Passage
The famous Inside Passage is home to some of the most gorgeous sunsets the world will ever see, framed by a frozen forest of glittering glaciers and snow-capped mountains.

Le Contre
Sail by the amazing glacier of Le Contre situated just outside of Petersburg, where pieces of its magnificent mass can often be seen breaking and falling into the icy water.

Admiralty Island
The Passage is also home to Admiralty Island, where the largest concentration of Brown Bears in the world can be found, and the United States’ largest National Park can be explored.

Haines
The scenic town of Haines is located on the shores of the Lynn Canal within the Inside Passage, and is Alaska at its most authentic. Cycle through the fantastic surroundings, play nine-holes on brilliant courses interspersed with salmon and trout streams or visit the impressive Bald Eagle Preserve.
